Im not an electrician or claiming that I am an expert but I can now say, there are certain repairs around the house that I can do myself without having to hire any outside work. At first, I ended up getting the wrong outlet because I the exact wattage and power has to match exactly or you can risk jeopardizing your whole electrical system within your whole house. Once I figure that I ended up going back and forth to the power outlet on the side of my house, turing it on and off as I was testing it (what a pain in the but that was!). Long story short, it was fixed but looking back now I probably would of just hired a professional repair men to fix my electrical outlet or any kind of house damage repair I have in my place of residence.
